Hotel Name: Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel.
Address: 199 Sukhumvit Road (between Sukhumvit Soi 13 and Soi 15), Bangkok, Thailand.
I stayed at the Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel in Bangkok. I booked online at the rate of 585 THB ($17.88 USD) per night, and I booked it for its price and location in Bangkok. The Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel is in the lower Sukhumvit area, which is a good area to stay for visitors to Bangkok.
I’ve walked along this street many times but I couldn’t recall the hotel when I booked it. The Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel is a 3-star hotel in between Soi 13 and Soi 15.
The Ruamchitt has a front and side entrance, so it is easy to get to without going down a side street.
After being checked in by the friendly staff I was shown to my room.
I booked a Deluxe Double Room and it was a nice and spacious room in good condition.
The bed was comfortable, though if you are travelling as a couple then someone misses out on a bedside table.
The room has air-conditioning but no fan. I had a good wifi connection in my room, and the desk was suitable to work from.
My room had a view of the BTS Skytrain on Sukhumvit Road. I could hear the rumble of the train but it wasn’t noisy, it was just that nice big city hum. The hotel is situated midway between Asak and Nana on the BTS Light Green Line, so it is in a prime position for urban rail transport in Bangkok.
The bathroom ticked all the right boxes for me; walk-in shower, modern toilet with bum gun, sink in a bench with lots of space to place stuff.
There is a swimming pool on the roof. I didn’t use it, but nice to know it was there.
There is also a bar on the ground level next to the reception. I don’t drink so that is not something I can review. This is a bar that is open to the public, so now is probably a good time to tell you that this is a wild section of Sukhumvit Road. It’s not far from Soi 4 (the girly bar street), and there are many ladies and ladyboys of the night that come out after sunset. If you are a single dude walking around here, then eyelashes will be batted at you and you may even be groped.
I was here for a short visit, so it was good to know that Bangkok is still so lively on the streets at night. I was here not long after the country reopened, so seeing lively street activity was encouraging. It did remind me though that if I was to live in Bangkok it would be further up Sukhumvit Road (somewhere around Thonglor Soi 55). Lower Sukhumvit is a good place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live there.
